Be a part of Hurricane Matthew recovery. Volunteers are needed to staff a Long Term Recovery Site. A long term recovery group is a cooperative body that is made up of representatives from faith-based, non-profit, government, business and other organizations working within a community to assist individuals and families as they recover from disaster.
The long term recovery process involves: 1. Identifying individuals and families with unmet needs in your community 2. Providing case management in order to prioritize how those needs will be met 3. Delivering goods, services and funds to meet those needs.
